“Top Level for a "No Frills"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Bings is my first choice when travelling to Blenheim because when I have stayed there the cost is modest, but the value is excellent. It does not bill itself as a luxury establishment, so if that is what you are looking for, look somewhere else. It is the oldest motel in Blenheim, but has kept its high levels of customer service and cleanliness. For the price level it is exceptional value. The location is the most convenient in Blenheim, too.

Very basic massive room, maybe too big for a single person, The lady at the reception was so friendly and nice, that made my stay very pleasant, car park just in front of your room, and easy to walk to shops and restaurants.

Possibly the oldest motel in Blenheim, and one that will languish in the lower ratings, it is what it says, a "No Frills, Budget" Motel. Room furniture was very basic and had all that was required, but also very damp (including the bedding) and musty. It also took twelve hours to take the edge of the cold. Has no internet connection.
On the positive side, it is very well located for shopping and restaurants (not that there are many in Blenheim).
Receptionist was very friendly and helpful.
Regards costs, you pay as much for a romm at the local motor camp, and you could get better rooms at other local motels for the same price.
